In order to connect your printer to send and recieve faxes you need to connect a phone cable from the back of the printer to the connection on your wall where you would generally connect a telephone.
There are usually to openings to connect the cable to on the back of the printer. One connects to the the wall as mentioned above.

The other usually has a symbol of a phone and you can connect a regular landline phone to that one.

CD's are not needed

To set up your phone number go through the menus on the printer. You don't have to do it unless you wish people to see where faxes are coming from.

Lexmark Productivity Suite --the faxes don't go through -- error message


Are you able to send faxes when using the printer operator panel - not through Lexmark Productivity Suite application on your computer? Are you able to receive faxes without any problems? Make sure the fax line where the printer is connected is working properly. It could be a signal quality in the connection.
You can also try to decrease the transmission speed when sending faxes. On your printer operator panel:
  1. Press the Fax button, then press Options 15 times to get to ADVANCED FAX.
  2. Press Select.
  3. Press Options ten times until MAX SEND SPEED appears on the LCD display.
  4. Change it to 9600 BPS using the - (left arrow) button.
  5. Press Select.
Try to send your fax again.

We can't receive a fax!!! how are we supose to connect with a phne line and the computer???


You don't need to have a computer plugged in to the Lexmark printer to receive faxes. Here's an article on How to Configure the Lexmark X7170 to Receive Faxes. Just click on this link: http://bit.ly/d643uT. If you are sharing your home phone line with the fax and you have an answering machine on the same line, make sure to configure the answering machine to pick up first then the fax machine. Voicemail feature can also block incoming faxes. Once voicemail picks up the fax, signal won't be passed on to the printer. But if you want, you can also contact Lexmark technical support to further investigate the problem.

Hi i can't send and receive faxes. My phone


Here's the link to download the Lexmark X7170 User's Guide: http://bit.ly/c8EHEn. Go to Faxing for the instructions on how to go through the settings on the printer. For setting the printer to ring to answer at 0, set it to pickup on the 1st ring. To turn off the distinctive ring, set the ring pattern to any. Hope this helps.

Lexmark drivers dont include fax and ocr--need software for fax on lexmark x7170


Hello. The fax and scan software can only be installed using the the installation cd that came with the printer. The file sizes are big , especially for the scan software, that's why they're not available for download online. If you lost/misplaced the installation cd, I would advise you to call Lexmark. They might send you one for free. Hope I can help you more with that.

Lexmark x7170 I need the fax driver/program for this all-in-one, printer. please help, i can't fax, lexmark site has no driver for vista.


Hello. The fax driver can be installed using the installation cd that came with the printer. I don't think it's available for download though. Most of Lexmark's scan and fax drivers can only be installed using the installation cd. If you don't have the cd, you can call Lexmark for assistance with that. They may be able to send you the installation cd. Good luck!

My fax machine


We are having the same problem. I can hear it dial, but when the receiver fax picks up, there is no signal from the Lexmark to let the receiver know that we are sending. All we need is one stupid "BEEP"! So much for plug-and-play.

Sending a fax by DSL requires one of two methods: 1. You obtain a DSL line filter suitable for connecting a standard voice telephone to the DSL line, then connect an analog fax modem to the line through the line filter. 2. You hire an Internet E-faxing service. See · http://www.slipstick.com/addins/services/fax.htm#internetfax · http://www.slipstick.com/addins/services/fax.htm · http://www.savetz.com/fax Tim
